21st Amendment’s Hell Or High Watermelon

21st Amendment's Hell Or High Watermelon

Style: Fruit/Wheat Beer
ABV: 4.9%
Availability: Through summer.

This wheat beer brewed with real watermelon is actually way more crisp than you’d expect and not nearly as sweet as it smells. If you think you hate fruit beer, definitely give this a try.

Anchor Brewing’s Summer Beer

Anchor Brewing's Summer Beer

Style: American Pale Wheat Ale
ABV: 4.5%
Availability: May-July

The first sip is surprisingly more sharp than your typical wheat beer, and it definitely smells strongly of bread. But that’s all evened out by the zesty lemon flavors that makes this a solid beach-side beer.

Dogfish Head’s Festina Pèche

Dogfish Head's Festina Pèche

Style: Berliner Weissbier
ABV: 4.5%
Availability: Through summer.

This beer is so balanced you’ll wish it was around all year. The peach and wheat will probably make your mouth pucker, but it’s more tart than tangy and finishes smoothly.
